I was with a man for two years and ended up pregnant with his baby (my daughter). He and I had a huge falling out and we ended up splitting up and he moved back to his native country, Guatemala.
He moved when she was 10 months old and he has no plans of returning. She doesn't remember him but on occasion we will visit with his mother whom she calls grandma.
I met a wonderful guy when she was 2 and we are getting married next fall. I'm expecting my first child with him and when we moved in together in February my daughter started calling him "daddy" all on her own. We didn't correct her as her bio dad will more than likely never be in her life and my fiance has been around and loves her as his own. He plans to adopt her once we are married.
How do we explain this to my daughter though? She's a few months shy of 4 and I want to always been honest about the situation. I want her to call my fiance daddy and be included in the family but I also do not want her growing up thinking we lied to her or something if we don't explain things properly.
